Red Knot

Calidris canutus

These medium-sized sandpipers are found in Washington State only during migration, in transit between their breeding grounds above the Arctic circle and the shoreline where they winter, as far south as southern South America. Visit the mudflats of Grays Harbor for your best chance to see these colorful shorebirds.
